IlGreven: If only they could fire the 25 guys actually playing on the roster./If ya didn't want Bobby V, you shouldn't have choked away the playoffs last year!
SoxSweepAgain: I am a lifelong Red Sox fan, but these guys aren't loveable losers. They're just losers.
FriarReb98: I'm okay with most of the regular hitters, save for Crawford.
WinoRhino: Management has really doubled-down on their dedication to Valentine with this move. McClure was in the organization before Valentine was, and Lucchino forced Valentine to keep him on-- though as a compromise he allowed him to also bring in Neimann as an assistant. Just a few months ago (I think it was right before the all-star break) they told Valentine that Neimann would no longer be allowed in the dugout during games (yes, both pitching coaches were there for the first couple months.) Now suddenly they're scapegoating their guy and letting Valentine use his people. What a clusterfark.
Dafatone: The Red Sox are 7 games out of a wild card spot. I almost want to see them come back just to shut everyone up.Yeah, it's a disappointing year, but 59-63 isn't awful. It's mediocre.
Marisyana: I hope this keeps up because it'll drive away all the bandwagoners and pink hats and make it easy to get seats at Fenway again. Also because I'm a Yankees fan and watching the Red Sox fall apart like a leper (in Sox fan Bill Simmons' words) is always extremely satisfying.
